TEAM GB paralympic gold medallist Sophie Christiansen spent time at a centre which helps children and adults.

The Rainbow Centre in Fareham welcomed the athlete, who won three gold medals in dressage at the Rio Paralympic Games.

Sophie, who has cerebral palsy, is a patron of the centre.

Lara Bull, chief executive, said: ‘Having been encouraged and challenged through childhood Sophie knows how important it is to ensure our children and adults believe how much can be achieved through determination and a positive mindset.’

While Sophie was at the centre the children held their own Paralympic games.

The Rainbow Centre helps children with cerebral palsy as well as adults who have Parkinson’s or have suffered a stroke or head injury.
